Kansas Threaten to Take Obama's Name Off Ballot
My bright red state is up to no good again. I swear they go out of their way to make national fools of themselves!
From Kansas City Star:
Republican leaders in Kansas are considering whether President Barak Obama is truly a citizen of the United States and whether they should strike his name from the November presidential ballot.
The objection was filed by Joe Montgomery, a communications coordinator for the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. He spoke before the all-Republican State Objections Board Thursday, arguing that "there is no certified legal documentation provided by (Obama's) counsel".
Obama's mother was born in Kansas but his father was born in Kenya. That alone does not make Obama a U.S. citizen. But the long-form birth certificate Obama released shows he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Hawaii officials confirm he was born there. That would make Obama a legal U.S. citizen.
Montgomery, though, claims the birth certificate was doctored and questions whether Obama is truly a U.S. citizen since his father was not an American.
The Kansas Objections Board consists of three Republican politicians: Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt, and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer. After hearing arguments Thursday, the Board voted to delay until Monday a decision on whether to take the President's name off the ballot. They want to hear from the President and receive more documentation on this issue.
It is so embarrassing sometimes to admit I live in Kansas--in one of the few blue counties, I quickly add.
